Beaumont Hospital, Dublin
“The antimicrobial stewardship team at Beaumont Hospital have been delighted to work with Medical EGuides on the development of an innovative new smartphone app which supports quick and easy access for doctors, nurses and pharmacists to the Beaumont Hospital updated antimicrobial guidelines. Since the official launch in July 2014, over 500 users have accessed it on their own mobile devices, with positive feedback received from staff. The antimicrobial stewardship team undertakes an annual audit of antimicrobial prescribing and has observed further improvements in compliance with hospital guidelines in the most recent audit conducted in September 2014. Given the public health issues of antimicrobial resistance related to suboptimal prescribing habits, the availability of the antimicrobial app ensures our prescriber’s have rapid access to our guidelines at the point of care."
